(2012) Jump was a project that came out of my residencies at Red Gate Gallery and Three Shadows. It is our response to the exuberance and hope felt by the youth of China.
the masters project
(2010 - 2011) After five years of research I presented the most monumental work I have ever undertaken. 20 portraits depicting stereotypes of Chinese and Australian masculinity. The project ran for six weeks and was seen my more then a 100 000 people.
(2000 - 2002) Every now and then an artist has too much, too much adoration and worship of sports people on the six o'clock news, and needs to react. What is the perfect male body? Sculpture and photography meet to ask questions around male body politics and the rise of neo-eugenics.
Shadows of Angkor
(1998 - 2004) Seven years of obsession, five adventures into the back blocks of Cambodia, Thailand and Laos. I suspect there are more 4000 images shot on infra-red film of all sizes of the 150 sites that I have visited. Selected works have been exhibited three times.
toHave & toHold
(1998-2000) We all know what women want, they tell us in a thousand women's magazines, but what do men want in a relationship? This project asked 44 men to write what they wanted and their photographs and what they want in a partner were put on the net and responses collected.
I'm Not a Tourist But...
(1997) Paris... Cartier-Bresson, Brassai... the streets... the history of photography... the stupidity of trying to be yet another tourist trying to walk in their foot steps... falling over the other tourists doing the same... or how I learnt that I was a tourist too, despite all the other titles we like to give ourselves.
(1996) Occupation was exhibited as part of Fractured Fairly Tales, with Tala, Peter Lin and Keith Yeo. It examines power and submission and how signifiers such as race, physical size and age change perceptions. All acts are taken out of context and become more disturbing.
Some Other Men
(1988 - ) In the early 1980's I studied modern history and found colonialism and more recent Australian immigration policy somewhat upsetting. Out in the real world I noticed how issues around race played out. I noticed that in the mid 1990's black americans had more media representation than men from Asia. This series started life as a redress to that issue but has grown much bigger.
